Welcome to Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara!


 

Giving Tuesday

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara has joined the #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support, and help create a better world. Taking place on December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving - #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. More than 10,000 organizations worldwide have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.

The Club is inviting charities, families, businesses, and other individuals to give back in a better and smarter way this year. Be a part of a movement that will transform how Santa Barbara thinks about, talks about, and participates in the act of giving this Holiday Season. Our goals are to encourage our community to:
